Wren House Brewing is excited to announce 2019 enrollment to our annual barrel club, The Saguaro Society!

This is a really fun time of the year for us as we rack barrels and deliver end of the year beers to this year’s Society while surveying our cellar lineup for next year’s Society. For 2019, you can expect to see a slew of brand new beers and returning favorites in a wide variety of barrels including Apple Brandy, Bourbon, Rum, Mead and more!

We are opening the 2019 Saguaro Society to a total of 250 members (returning and new) who will gain exclusive access to our most limited release beers, VIP access to public release beers through our pre-order process, Society-only events and merchandise, and an unlimited 15% discount on draft beer and merchandise in our taproom. Read on for the details…

Exclusive Access to society releases

Society releases are our most limited quantity releases, usually barrel-aged in no more than a few barrels. Each member is allocated the maximum number of bottles/cans that can be equally allocated to each member. Members or their proxies have one month to come into the taproom to purchase and pickup these releases (purchases can be made through the pre-order process or in person, whichever you prefer). Any cans/bottles left over after the member sale may be used at Wren House’s discretion (e.g. added to our public taproom cellar list for onsite consumption, poured at events, etc.)

VIP Access to public releases

Public releases are larger quantity releases of non-barrel-aged Wren House beers in cans or bottles. This members benefit allows pre-ordering before every public release and a one week window for the member or proxy to come into the taproom to pickup their purchase. Think of this as a concierge service to give you the option to bypass release day madness.

Taproom Discount

Your membership gives you unlimited 15% off draft beer and crowlers/growlers in the taproom and merchandise purchased in the taproom. This one is big if you plan on making Wren House your third space in 2019!

Society Swag

Included in the price of membership are two special edition Society glasses and your choice of any Wren House hat or tee shirt. You can pick up and choose these items anytime after January 1 or at our Society kickoff party.

faq

Q: Why aren't there any bottles included in the membership?
A: This is a membership-for-access program that is designed to work within Arizona Liquor Law and give full control to Members to decide which releases they want to take home. Instead of rolling in the cost for beers that we choose for you, we offer a lower priced membership that lets you choose to purchase as many or as few as you want.

Q: Can I purchase this membership as a gift for someone else?
A: Absolutely, at checkout select the gift option and follow the prompts to enter that lucky person's information.

Q: Are proxy's allowed?
A: Yes! We allow each member to designate a proxy for each pickup as needed. We even allow you to change proxies from time to time throughout the year. If you know who that person is, you can designate on the order form.

Q: Why are you adding 50 spots to the membership?
A: We have focused on our barrel program from the start and continuously work to improve quality first and quantity second. We always want to over-deliver on our commitments, so we make these decisions conservatively. We are excited to welcome a small group of new members to the Society ranks this year!

Q: If bottles aren't included, what am I paying for?
A: Your membership fee to covers the costs of administering the Society. That includes direct costs and labor costs behind the great experience we strive to deliver. Your support in paying this membership fee up front helps us greatly to invest in our barrel aging program to grow capacity and make more and better BA beers.

Q: What beers will I be able to purchase?
A: The best way to answer is to show what has been offered so far to 2018 members. We have some favorites that will be re-brewed, and a lot of one-offs that are hard to predict! This is the packaged list offered to 2018 Members (to date) with exclusive BA beers in boldface: Christmas Cactus, Bad Boy Wally, Colony Collapse, Valley Beer, Spellbinder, Fire Barrel, Nest Egg, Black Canyon, Highway Vacay, Sad Boy Wally, Spellbound, Kingsnake, No Pale Ales, Phoenix Down, Dino DNA, Phoenix Lights, Robot Grasshopper, Bad Boy Wally, Big Spill Pils, Good Boy Wally, Sad Boy Wally, Where's Wally, Dankworth Citra, Heather Belle, Lady Banks, Peaches & Cream Sour, Berries & Cream, Black Caddis, Spellbinder, Bolo Tie Rye, Raisin Eaters, Valley Beer, Pie Thief, Big Spill Pils, Ominous Octopus, Pie Thief Midnight, Predation, Festbier, E112, Thanksgiving Cactus, Stemmed, Festbier, Pecan Pie Thief, The Watchman, Oatmeal Cookie Raisin, Carefree, …
